  • Page 11: Introduction

    The network-connected Brother machine allows multiple computers to carry out several independent print jobs on one machine. To use the Brother machine through a network, you need to select a protocol, configure the Print / Fax Server, and set up the computers you use.
  • Page 12: Protocol Configuration Items

    Protocol Configuration Items TCP/IP Configuration • IP Address • Gateway (when routers exist on your network) IP Address An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each computer connected to the Internet. An IP address consists of four numbers separated by dots.
  • Page 13 Gateway (and Router) A Gateway is the transfer device that passes data between networks. A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway.
  • Page 14: Network Connection

    We recommend to use this product in a Peer to Peer environment in which each computer directly sends and receives data to and from the Brother machine. Peer-to-Peer Printing Each computer requires configuration of the printer port.
  • Page 15: Network Example

    Router TCP/IP • Each computer needs the TCP/IP and Print Protocol configured. • The Brother machine needs to have an IP address configured. • If a TCP/IP environment has been already established, we recommend using Peer-to-Peer. • If a routers exist, then computers can access the Brother machine through the routers.

    For AT&T UNIX-based systems, type: ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd The Brother Print/Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when the printer is powered on. Using BOOTP to Configure the IP Address BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and gateway.
